Expanding a macro in a custom action

I created a global macro:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<macros version='9'>
<macro name='TF_EXE_PATH'>
<description>Path, including the exe file to your local systems TF.exe</description>
<value>%DEVSTUDIO_NET_DIR%\Common7\IDE\TF.exe</value>
</macro>
</macros>

Inside my custom action (C#), I try to expand the macro like so:
IMacros macros = builder.App.get_Macros( MacroTypeEnum.vbldMacroGlobal );
builder.LogMessage( builder.App.ExpandMacros( Convert.ToString( macros[ "TF_EXE_PATH" ].Value ) ) );

When I run my step, I get the following error:
Exception: System.NotImplementedException: The method or operation is not implemented.
at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExcept ionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)

at VersionManager.Manager.CheckoutAIFile(String AssemblyInfoPath, IStep step, Builder builder)

I've tried using:
builder.ExpandMacros(...)
builder.App.ExpandMacros(...)
builder.App.ExpamdMacrosAndScripts(...)

All of them say that the method isn't implemented.

Any suggestions I could try?

Thanks,

Craig

I'm not sure -- I added the following line to the NETAction user sample (Samples\User Actions\NETAction):

Code:
builder.LogMessage(builder.App.ExpandMacrosAndScript("%VISBUILDDIR%"));
and it logged

C:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9

when built.

Does it work for you?

If I run your code, it writes out the same string that you posted. I noticed that you're not getting the macro prior to calling the ExpandMacro method so I tried this:

builder.App.ExpandMacros( "%TF_EXE_PATH%" );

And that worked, so I'm not sure what's wrong with my method but it works so hopefully someone can learn from my issue.

Thanks for the quick response.

This also worked:

Code:
IMacros macros = builder.App.get_Macros(MacroTypeEnum.vbldMacroAll);
builder.LogMessage(builder.App.ExpandMacrosAndScript(macros["VISBUILDDIR"].Value.ToString()));
